Labour splits over schools policy

Surgery at Wood Green – harrowing as ever! Work at constituency office in afternoon – and get further news on the mess in Haringey education with sight of a local Labour leaflet. Labour are in real trouble as several of their council candidates have now started openly campaigning against the official Labour local schools policies.

They have attacked the official schools policy calling it “controversial” and “wrong”. They have also warned how Labour’s schools policy will only help “a select few”. Well – it’s still Labour policy and a Labour government who are trying to ram through a diabolical Education Bill at the moment.

We have been pointing out Labour’s dreadful policies for a long time. The awful situation is that over 180 children find themselves without an offer of any secondary school place for September – and on top of that over 80 younger kids from Haringey without the offer of any primary school place.
